As Attorney General Dodges Questions, Moral Imperative Demands Sestak Set the Record Straight on WH Bribe Attempt

Published: May 19, 2010

“On numerous occasions, Congressman Joe Sestak, now the Pennsylvania Democratic Nominee for United States Senate, has said without equivocation that the White House illegally offered him a federal job in exchange for dropping out of the race.  The Attorney General refuses to answer direct questions on whether the Justice Department is investigating what would amount to multiple felonies.  Either Joe Sestak has been lying for months and he should say so or he has first-hand knowledge of the White House breaking the law and has a moral imperative to come forward and expose who within the Obama Administration tried to bribe him.” – Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and Member of the House Judiciary Committee

Rep. Joe Sestak Tells the Story in His Own Words on February 18th:

Q.  “Were you ever offered a federal job to get out of this race?”
A.  “Yes,”

Q.  “Was it the Navy secretary?”
A.  “No comment…I would never get out for a deal. I’m in this for the Democratic principles.”

Q.  “OK, but was there a job offered you by the White House?”
A.  “Yes.”
